‘…and Mary’s reign continued…’
Though R&B has welcomed and bid adieu to many a newbie over the years, Mary J.Blige has always remained the heartbeat of the genre, stood side by side with Beyonce & Alicia Keys as three of the genre’s only acts with a potent crossover appeal.
For, as she watches her latest traditional LP ‘My Life II…The Journey Continues’ soar towards Platinum heavens, the entertainer has now been given more cause to rejoice today thanks to its follow up.
Good news below…
Now available to purchase worldwide , Blige’s Christmas LP ‘A Mary Christmas‘ has sold enough copies in the last two days to earn it a Top 20 on iTunes UK! This, thanks to her Jessie J assisted performance of Baker and Regney‘s ‘Do You Hear What I Hear?’ on the ‘X Factor UK.’
As it stands, ‘Mary’ is currently outselling Lady GaGa‘s ‘ARTPOP (#23)’ and Drake‘s ‘Nothing Was The Same(#35)’, both of which scored Top 5 debuts in the market and #1 spots on the Billboard 200 upon their respective releases.
